The Siege of Osaka

The Siege of Osaka is a series of battles fought between the Tokugawa clan and the Toyotomi clan from 1514 to 1615. The battles in 1614 are called "Fuyu no jin" (the winter campaign) and those in 1615 are called "Natsu no jin" (the summer campaign). Tokugawa Ieyasu, who became a shogun (Sei-i taishogun) in 1602 is said to have planned to destroy the Toyotomi clan but there are some theories about it.

Tokugawa Ieyasu worries how Toyotomi Hideyori deals with the issue

The immediate cause was the inscription on the bell of Hokoji temple. He insisted that there are some words that cursed him and some other words praised the Tototomi clan. Then Toyotomi Hideyori sent Okurakyo no Tsubone, nurse of his mother Chacha (Lady Yodo) to account for it. Ieyasu welcomed her and listened to her. On the other hand, he pressed KATAGIRI Katsumoto, vassal of Hideyori to explain it. As a result, Katsumoto was not trusted by the Toyotomi clan and became to serve the Tokugawa clan. Finally the negotiation between them fell apart.

Then Hideyori gathered many ronins, most of whom were daimyos and their vassals beaten in the Battle of Sekigahara. SANADA Yukimura was included in them. He constructed a fort Sanada maru at the south of Osaka Castle and beat some daimyos under Tokurgawa Ieyasu in the winter campaign. But Ieyasu shot a cannonball to Osaka Castle and astonished Chacha, then both sides make peace and the soldiers of the Tokugawa Army destroyed Sanada Maru and filled the moats of the castle.

After that, some od Hideyori's vassals were out of control and triggered off the summer campaign. In it, Toyotomi side ran out of provision and money and they were forced to fight tough battles. And Hideyori was not allowed to go out and command his army by the women in the castle. Meanwhile, many ronins were defeated and Yukimura tried to kill Ieyasu but couldn't. The final battle was about to end and he went to Yasui Shrine. When he took a rest there, he found NISHIO Munetsugu, who served Echizen Matsudaira clan and told him to bring his head to his lord. Some say that Munetsugu fought against and killed him and then found it's Yukimura. And Sen went to the headquaeter of her grandfather and father to beg for Hideyori's life but was in vain.

The plan for Sanada Maru in the series

In "Sanada Maru",  SANADA Nobushige is asked to join the ronins who gather in Osaka Castle. He, GOTO Matabei, Mori Katsunaga. Chosokabe Morichika and AKASHI Teruzumi are called the Osaka Five (Osaka Goninshu) and have their own troops. He proposes to Hideyori that they should not sustain a siege but is disagreed by ODA Urakusai, uncle of Chacha. Then he plans to construct Sanada Maru to defend the southern part of the castle. He, his son Daisuke and his vassals fight against the troop of II Naomasa well and win in the winter campaign. But Ieyasu shoots a cannonball to Osaka Castle that killed some of the maids of Chacha. Then his concubine Ahca no Tsubone makes peace with Okurakyo no Tsubone ignoring Hatsu, younger sister of Chacha who also participates in the negotiation. Then Sanada Maru is destroyed and the moats are filled.

In the next year, some radical samurais dig up the moats and the ronins buy arms including guns with the lump sum to tranquillize them. But it provokes Ieyasu and  causes the battle again. Though the Toyotomi Army fight well, the Tokugawa's side is overwhelming. At last Yukimura kills himself in Yasui Shrine and it makes his brother Nobuyuki sad. His wife Haru, daughter Ume and second son Daihachi is sheltered by DATE Masamune. There are some fictional parts as the secret love of Yukimura and Chacha, the relationship with his "eternal partner" Kiri, and the assassination of the double of Tokugawa Ieyasu in the series. And also in the series, Sen is sent to his father's headquarter but doesn't beg for her husband's life.
